Now the Smithsonian is calling. They already have acquired First Lady Michelle Obama’s ballgown and now they want Aretha’s hat, the original for their collection.
“I am considering it. It would be hard to part with my chapeau since it was such a crowning moment in history. I would like to smile every time I look back at it and remember what a great moment it was in American and African-American history. Ten cheers for President Obama,” she said in a statement, according to New York Magazine.
I feel you Aretha, I would NOT want to part with that historic hat. Luke Song, hook a sista up!
